According to Mark Gurman, the successor to the iPhone XS Max will feature a camera with a triple lens , while the next generation of the iPhone XS and iPhone XR will come equipped with a double lens. Gurman said the third camera would allow a larger field of view, wider zoom range and capture more pixels.
Apple is working on a feature that would use this additional pixel data to provide tools to automatically repair a photo or video , and also make it possible to adjust the image if a subject is “accidentally cut off from the initial shot” . Work is also underway on an improved version of Live Photos, which increases the length of the accompanying video to six seconds.
Gurman also said some versions of the 2019 iPhone would use a USB-C connector instead of a Lightning port , which could mean Apple plans to switch from Lightning to USB-C at some point. As for the processor, it would be an improved A Series chip, and the phone would have a new Face ID sensor. However, we wouldn’t see much change in the design as it would look similar to the models launched in 2018.
Bloomberg’s report also made clear that iPhone camera technology will become even more advanced from 2020 , as part of Apple’s drive to advance its augmented reality ambitions. The company will launch laser-operated 3D time-of-flight cameras, which will result in significant enhancements to the AR experience on the iPhone.
Bloomberg further stated that the camera will be able to scan areas up to 15 feet away from the device . Apple’s TrueDepth front camera uses 3D technology, but since it is infrared and does not work with lasers, it only works at distances of 25 to 50 centimeters.
